I understand that you can set the colour of a cell when writing to an excel spreadsheet from PHP using PHPExcel - however, I need to get the colour of a cell of an excel sheet that I'm reading in to parse into a database - could anyone tell me how to do this?  Reason is that I want to ignore cells which have a particular background colour.
